DIRECTIONS TO THE CAPITOL ANNEX
NOTE: You will be asked to show a picture ID when you enter the Capitol Annex.
From west of Frankfort: Take I-64 to the first set of Frankfort exits and take Exit 53-B (second of the 127 exits), proceeding northbound on Highway 127.
To go to the Parking Garage: Turn right at the second light (after you have passed Kroger/Penney’s/Office Depot shopping center) onto Highway 676. Go through one caution light and one traffic light and turn left onto Highway 420 at the second traffic light. There is a left-turn lane and arrow and a sign on the right “To the Capitol”. Turn left into the Capitol Parking Garage and park on Levels 5 or 6 (the first or second levels you come to). Follow the directions below.
From east of Frankfort: Take I-64 to the first Frankfort exit, onto Highway 60. Take Highway 60 northbound toward Frankfort. Turn left onto Highway 676. Immediately crossing the Kentucky River, turn right onto Highway 420. Travel about a mile and turn left into the Capitol Parking Garage. Park on Levels 5 or 6; follow the directions below.
Once in the Parking Garage: Take the parking garage elevator UP to Level 1 (I know it is illogical, but Level 6 is the bottom level of the garage!). When you exit from the elevator at Level 1, go straight ahead, through the glass doors to the outside parking lot (also open to non-legislator parking). The Capitol Annex is directly ahead and the Capitol building is slightly to your right.
If you need an accessible entrance to the Annex: Instead of parking in the garage, take the ramp all the way up to the ground level, turn right, and go to the stop sign. If you are coming to the Capitol Annex, turn left and drive behind the Annex building. There is an accessible door immediately on your right. This will put you on the basement floor. Go down the corridor to the cafeteria on the left. Further down the corridor past the intersection are the elevators on the left. Straight ahead is the tunnel to the Capitol.
Entering the Annex: To enter the Annex, go up the outside stairs and into the main doors (second set of doors), where you will be asked to check in with the security guard, show a picture ID and be given a sticker. You will then be on the first floor of the annex. Proceed to Annex Room 346 using elevators to the right or stairs to the left.
Legislators’ Offices: Senators’ offices are located on the second floor of the Annex; Representatives’ offices are located on the third and fourth floors.
Will you come?
